About me

I am a General Counsellor, Youth Counsellor and CBT Practitioner. I know that looking for a counsellor can sometimes be a difficult and confusing process but it may help you to know that I work in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. I listen carefully to people, helping them to work towards feeling better. I seek to empower them to help themselves.

It's important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor and know that everything that's said is confidential. With that in mind, your first session with me will be free of charge; it's an opportunity for us to meet and for you to decide if you want to go ahead with counselling.

As a Registered, Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I work within an ethical framework which exists to maintain good standards of practice and to protect clients.

I specialise in Youth Counselling, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Bereavement Counselling. I have spent more than ten years helping people work through a large variety problems including anxiety,depression bullying, eating disorders, self harm and relationship problems.
